Rainn Wilson aka Dwight Schrute from “The Office” is not one of the quirkiest and funniest characters on the popular TV series, but also seems to enjoy the quirkiness of the BMW i3 electric car. A caption on a selfie posted on his Instagram account reads the following: “Selfie with i3. Thank you @BMW for creating such a lovely and practical electric car.”
In the show, Dwight has often reference a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am which fits his on-TV personality, but in real life, Wilson is more of a cool guy who enjoys the practicality and high-tech of the i3.
His i3 features the Arravani Grey paint job paired with the typical blue accents of BMW i cars.
In its first full year of sales in the U.S., the BMW i3 electric vehicle sold to 11,024 customers helping BMW break last year’s all time sales record. In 2016, the figure is likely to go up even more so the odds of seeing celebrities behind the wheel of an i3 are increasing every day.
In the end, California is known for the Hollywood celebrities and their love for green and quirky-looking hybrids or EVs.
